Major Giving is dedicated to one overarching goal– making our clients successful fundraisers. Nonprofits may seem similar, but we see each as unique. Our mission, “connecting people with philanthropy,” is accomplished by getting to know your organization, looking at it from the inside out and providing you with customized answers that guide you in the right direction. We work with you on an individual basis, identifying your challenges and opportunities and creating strategic action plans. We do not offer pat answers; we work with you to change outcomes, to achieve the success you want.
To meet the challenge of fulfilling your mission and vision, fundraising must be a priority. For your fundraising activities to be successful, they must be ambitious, and your organization must be positioned to take advantage of opportunities when they come your way. Recognizing this, MajorGiving takes a holistic approach to consulting to make sure you are implementing the best practices from the ground up. Whether we are consulting with you on your annual fund program, creating a case statement or training your board, we work with you on all levels to challenge yourselves and your expectations. We want you to visualize where you can be, and we support you in attaining those goals.
Every non-profit organization can and should have an active, successful major giving program. MajorGiving provides customized solutions to help you implement, manage and grow your donor base and substantially increase individual giving. Our clients seek our support in all areas of individual giving, including:
We view each donor as a unique individual who invests in your organization's mission and vision. Philanthropy is voluntary, and we believe that our role as fundraisers is to help people understand how giving to your organization betters your community and helps others. We also work to build sustainable and donor-centered programs.
The intergenerational wealth transfer over the next several decades is estimated to be in the tens of trillions of dollars and savvy non-profit organizations have been steadily building systematic methods for marketing planned giving opportunities--yet fewer than ten percent of Americans have a charitable estate plan. Our objective is for our clients to increase that percentage significantly and take advantage of largely untapped revenue within their own donor consituencies.
MajorGiving provides an array of tools and consulting support that will enable you to develop and maintain a robust planned giving program inexpensively. We will help you develop a comprehensive planned giving program based upon marketing bequests (80 percent of all planned giving is from bequests), as well as gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of real estate and retirement assets.
For organizations entering into a capital campaign, MajorGiving.com offers a specialized service, Capital Campaign Coach. We recognize that not all capital campaigns are alike. That is why we do not use boilerplate solutions. We believe that most non-profit organizations have the ability to run their campaigns as staff and volunteer-driven efforts, and we help nonprofits strategize their time and resources accordingly. This translates into a huge savings for your organization and a streamlined effort. Does this eliminate the hard work and planning of a capital campaign? Absolutely not. But we make your campaigns more efficient, guaranteeing that you spend the maximum time with your donors!
“A board that elects its own members has the advantage of determining its needs based on the profile of the present board. It can stress group dynamics as well as missing skills as the key focal point for the search of new candidates. It can stress the need for diversity among board members.” (BoardSource.org).
We work with boards to reinvigorate them, help them develop their strategic plan to align with their mission and values. A typical consulting project includes:
After the board self-assessment and review, we work together with boards in an active planning process that will occur over a four-month period, during which we will establish an action plan for delineating governance vs. fundraising functions, monitoring board performance on both a collective and individual basis, establishing board member expectations, and creating an optimal work plan for collaboration with executive director.
